Blood in stool: You should be evaluated by a GI dr you could have colitis, ulcers or even cancer causing your bleeding. Your abnormal liver test need further evaluation with ultrasound and blood tests.

Need more evaluation: Yes, the combination of abnormal liver enzymes (not attributable to alcohol) and GI bleeding raises considerable concern. There are many possibilities here, but comprehensive lab work and endoscopic testing will clarify your diagnosis & needed treatment. In the meantime, please avoid nsaid's or Aspirin (unless medically prescribed), & let your doctor know you want to move your testing along.
